Chestnut-sided Warbler minus some chestnut?

Yes, a Chestnut-sided Warbler.

Is this a female? Lacking the amount of chestnut color of the other two I have seen?

Could well be an older (after second-year) female - the crown looks a relatively dull, and the black on the mask isn't very strong.

That said, these may also be characters of second-year male, I'm not that familiar with the differences.

I'd expect even a young male to show more black in the face. I'd call this a female.

Aside: why do we feel the need to say "yes, it is that species that you thought it was" four times in a thread? Are we that attached to post counts?

Multiple confirmations inspire confidence in the ID. Otherwise, it's just one person's opinion. And, in any case, where's the harm??

No harm, just curious.

I just think that those non-contentious ones are thoroughly confirmed with a couple of replies. Anything beyond that seems to be an attempt to pad the post count, especially when those superfluous confirmations don't add any information. If they actually explained to the OP why it's species X, then I get the value.

No harm, though. Just pointless.

Pointless to you, maybe, but to the complete tyro who knows little or nothing about birds, the more confirmations the better, I should've thought. As for "post counts", which you keep harping on, they're obviously important to you but not necessarily to the rest of us. They certainly don't motivate me.

I also like to get a confirmation from one of the more reliable names on here and if they say its a good id even with a simple agreed, then thats great.

Besides, lots of posts can give a user of this site, particularly a new user, the impression that people here actually care ;-) Oh, and it is a Chestnut-sided Warbler ;-)

Its a chestnut-sided warbler!

+1 post wooo.

I find it pretty sad anyone would waste their time trying to increase their post count on a birding forum.
